Fort Worth fire station temporarily relocates

🕐 1 min read

Fort Worth Fire Station 9 will be temporarily moving its crew and truck to another station about 10-15 minutes away, due to renovations beginning Nov. 30.

Station 9, located at 2575 Polaris Drive, is moving north to Station 31, located at 4209 Longstraw Drive, and will stay there for the next three to four weeks as renovations are taking place.

The renovations to Station 9 involve work on the HVAC system and the removal of flooring and ceiling tiles that have asbestos.

Before closing Station 9, the Fort Worth Fire Department Safety and Education Group and volunteers from the Citizens Fire Academy visited 105 homes in the Melody Hills neighborhood, located north of Station 9, to install 32 smoke detectors and 14 batteries. Both groups have plans to install more smoke detectors in that area.

While renovation is taking place, Station 9 will have signs posted at the front telling residents to call 911 for emergencies. According to a news release, the temporary relocation will have “minimal service impact” to the area.
